Moveable Feast was recognized for its community service by receiving the first annual William Donald Schaefer Helping People Award on April 18. It was presented by state Comptroller Peter Franchot.
One service provider from each jurisdiction in Maryland was honored, and Moveable Feast was chosen from among the Baltimore non-profit service agencies to receive the award on the day of the first anniversary of former governor and Baltimore mayor William Donald Schaefer’s death.
“Don Schaefer was an exemplar of service to the community during his many years of public office,” Tom Bonderenko, executive director of Moveable Feast told the Blade. “I am proud to accept this award in his memory as Moveable Feast exemplifies a model of service to some of the most vulnerable citizens in Maryland: those with serious illness and the poor. Working together, government and nonprofit organizations raise up those who are most oppressed and neglected. Like Schaefer, Moveable Feast is committed to serving all people in need of our service.”
Moveable Feast provides nutritious foods and other services in order to preserve quality of life for people with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, and other life-threatening conditions. For more information, visit mfeast.org.
